Must I believe all of my Church's teachings to be protected from religious discrimination?
Employees are protected from religious discrimination, even if their beliefs differ from the official doctrines of their religion.
I belong to a progressive Church. We are Catholics, but we believe that the current positions of the Vatican on things like women's ordination, celibacy, and gay rights are erroneous interpretations of the divine instruction contained in the Bible. My manager is a member of a traditional Catholic Church, and we have discussed religion on occasion. He has begun making pointed comments to me about my beliefs, telling me that I'm not a true Catholic, that I can't just change the rules if I don't like them, questioning my belief in God, and so on. It's gotten to a point where every time we meet, it devolves into him questioning my religious beliefs. I finally told him that I was starting to feel harassed because of my religion; he countered that my beliefs aren't religious because they diverge from the Church's current doctrine, so he can say whatever he wants. Do I have any rights here?
